Through this painting, I wanted to show how much the donors meant to us. They will always be the roots of our knowledge that nourish our education. Without the roots, the rest of our branches would remain bare. The fruits of our knowledge come from them, and for that we will always be grateful.

They include humility, eye-opening, enlightened, thankful, humbling, grateful, self-less, unforgettable, inspirational, a gift that keeps on giving.
